The Global Challenges Summit program approved our session called


The brief of our session is as follows.

The Gender inequality index (the Gender Inequality Index) currently shows that there are half as many opportunities for women as there are for men. In particular, only a quarter of the seats in national parliaments were given to women, and the statistics among heads of state were even more significant. In today’s world, there are only 22 women leaders who govern countries and hold the posts of Prime Ministers. In the field of technology, the vast majority of specialists are still men. Examples of women leaders in the fields of science, STEM and international business are rare. Only 20% of women occupy top positions in the corporate world.

How will the situation change in the future? That will bring new female managers? How will the business landscape change with the arrival of women leaders? Will the world of the future be a world of equal opportunities?

The session will be included in the track “NEW WORLD MAN”.

In the composition of the project team preparation for the Forum, yet few people: Chairman of the Presidium Saltanat Rakhimbekova, Lasat Askarova, CEO and Aliya Galbadia, Presidium member of “Expo&Women”.

We are grateful to Aliya for her creative approach to the realization of our session. Thanks to her communications at the international level, she was able to negotiate with very well – known speakers-real stars.

Who are they? Very soon we will start publishing about the speakers of our session.

Thus, the contribution of women and women’s leadership in the global trends of our time is once again updated. Our organization proves its competence and readiness to work at the international level!
